Uganda Road Authority and Ministry of Public Works Headquarters, Kampala, Uganda

Two linked medium rise towers have glazed sunscreens facing towards central Kampala: they will accommodate the Uganda Road Authority and Ministry of Public Works. The expressed reinforced concrete frame is designed to address the seismic conditions prevailing in the Rift Valley region, with columns buttressed like the giant hardwoods of the local forests.. Lightweight sunscreen panels float between the columns. The towers will accommodate 400 staff, with meetings rooms, conference facilities and other staff facilities. The project is undertaken in association with Norplan AS and Newplan Uganda.

Planned completion: 2012, currently on hold.
